SITEX Expands Henderson, Kentucky, Operations

SITEX Corp., a family-owned uniform and linen rental business, plans to expand its operations in Henderson, Kentucky. The $4.5 million project is expected to create 30 jobs.

The investment will include an additional 2,500-square-feet of space, the purchase of new equipment, expansion of the loading dock, and automation of several processes. Work on the facility is expected to get underway immediately and be completed by 2026.

“This continued investment in our Henderson facility will create more opportunities for Henderson-area residents and support our company’s growth in Kentucky as well as our other locations,” said Travis Girten, controller at SITEX.

To encourage investment and job growth in the community, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) today preliminarily approved a 10-year incentive agreement with the company under the Kentucky Business Investment program. The performance-based agreement can provide up to $300,000 in tax incentives based on the company’s investment of $4.5 million and annual targets of creation and maintenance of 30 Kentucky-resident, full-time jobs across 10 years, paying an average hourly wage of $20 including benefits across those jobs.

By meeting its annual targets over the agreement term, the company can be eligible to keep a portion of the new tax revenue it generates. The company may claim eligible incentives against its income tax liability and/or wage assessments. In addition, SITEX can receive resources from Kentucky’s workforce service providers. Those include no-cost recruitment and job placement services, reduced-cost customized training and job-training incentives.

“Henderson Economic Development continues to be encouraged by our existing industries growing in our community,” added Whitney Risley, director of existing industries and workforce development at Henderson Economic Development. “We appreciate the forward-thinking of SITEX to invest in efficient equipment and add jobs in Henderson.”

Founded in 1961, SITEX offers uniform, linen and textile rental services to thousands of customers throughout Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee and Illinois. The company’s products include uniforms, kitchen apparel, linen services, restroom and hygiene products, and first-aid products. The company’s additional facilities operate in Louisville, Paducah, Nashville, Tennessee, and Jasper, Indiana. Currently, 106 people are employed by SITEX in Kentucky.
